PEP GUARDIOLA predicts Manchester City will have an ‘amazing decade’ after signing his new two-year deal.

The former Barcelona manager, who was in the last seven months of his existing contract, has now signed until the summer of 2025.

He held talks with the club hierarchy in Abu Dhabi over the weekend and agreed to stay as he still believes they can achieve more together.

SunSport reported on November 7 that he would be speaking to the club hierarchy during the World Cup break.

And City announced the agreement on Wednesday morning – which will be a huge boost when the domestic season resumes next season.

Guardiola said: “I am very happy to stay at Manchester City for two more years.

“I can’t thank everyone at the club enough for trusting me. I’m comfortable and comfortable and I have everything I need to do my job as well as I can.

“I know the next chapter of this club will be great for the next decade. It’s happened in the last ten years and it’s going to happen in the next ten years because this club is so stable.

“I felt something special here from day one. I can’t be in a better place.

“I still feel like we can achieve more together and that’s why I want to stay and keep fighting for trophies.”

Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak was delighted to have retained the services of one of the world’s leading executives for another two years.

He said: “I’m delighted Pep’s journey continues with Manchester City.

“He has already contributed so much to the success and fabric of this organization and it is exciting to imagine what could be possible given the energy, hunger and ambition that he clearly still has.

“Under his very special leadership, our first team has achieved so much while continuously playing and constantly evolving a city football that is admired around the world.

“Like any City fan, I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.”

The former Barcelona manager visited Abu Dhabi – home of owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak – over the weekend.

And he is believed to have held talks with the Etihad hierarchy ahead of his participation in Sunday’s Grand Prix.

The fact that he was in the final seven months of his contract and the situation threatened to derail the club’s season.

But now he wants to stay until the summer of 2025 – and stay in office for nine years.

And that will raise the prospect of him potentially completing a decade in charge at City.
